This is a great day on the Clonakilla calendar. We get to release our edgier rare and small batch wines to you, our devoted Clonakilla family.
2015 and 2016 were both cracking vintages so we had no excuses to produce anything below par.
I’m confident you are going to very happy with these wines. My only regret is that we have no Tumbarumba Chardonnay to offer you this year due to a severe frost that wiped out the fruit from our grower Steve Morrison at Revee Estate. (The 2017, now finishing it’s ferment in barrel, looks terrific)
Classically rich from a warmer year, it retains its signature balance of opulence and restraint.
2016 Pinot Noir
Just delicious with abundant red berry fruit and a wild, savoury edge.
Not too heavy, not too light, just eminently drinkable. Something new and exciting has been discovered in Murrumbateman.
A blend of the Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Two years in oak. A powerful wine and a great example of the style.
This wine: ‘very aromatic …elegant, poised & stately.. abundant fine tannins… lovely balance. 98 points’ – Huon Hooke
Just buy it…
